I think 210 is kinda high.....
How do you have your fans run when the cars turns off?
Glad you asked. I use the magic ZZP Estat that fools the computer into thinking the engine temp is 190 when it is really 160. :P It keeps the fans on all the time and goes into the 3min engine off run condition too. Very Cool and works like a charm. I can unplug it anytime and it'* back to normal....like for winter driving.
Paul, you understand that the PCM will command timing and fueling based on the ECT right? You may foul plugs (or lose performance) if your running cool and the PCM pulls fuel and timing because it thinks its warmer than it is....just a thought.

The fans should run for 3 min if the ECT is over 180 and you turn the car off.

Hope you're not just knocking the mod cause it came from the competition ZZP.

Actually, I think it has gained performance. The gauge indicates a steady 190 but when I pull the EStat connection, it is actually holding 160 - 170 F.
Getting the best fuel mileage I've even gotten and am easily able to run with the 3.2" pulley all the time now. I love it. The plugs are burning fine and appear normal.
I think the mileage has improved cause it doesn't stay in the overly rich condition during warm up as long as it used to.
I believe it to be one of the best mods I've done this year....next to the limited slip diff and your Harland Sharp rockers.
